Part 3 Parties, voters and social change - w(h)ither the Scandinavian party system model?: "earthquake elections" asnd new parties - the "unfreezing" of the Scandinavian party systems; party system change in Scandinavian since 1970 - "restricted change" or "general change"?. Part 4 A (the) Nordic model?: a Nordic model of government - myth or reality?; the Nordic welfare model - a case of "paradise lost"?. Part 5 legislative-executive relations in the Nordic region: a distinctively " Scandinavian form of parliamentarism"?; the dual executive in Iceland and Finland - "semi-presidential government" in more than name?. Part 6 The Nordic states in their strategic external environment: the origins of the post-war security configuration in Northern Europe; security and co-operation in the Nordic region 1949-91; the Nordic states in the New Europe - still "reluctant Europeans"?; the Nordic states on the eve of the new millennium.
